#soulSeptember #melancoly I hunted for this book so hard ,and back in the day , there were very few reprints.(No online ordering either)I consider it a major failing that I haven‘t read it yet.For those in the #NYRBbookclub they have an edition. Hey , at least I‘m honest about it .😀

batsy That looks wonderful. Was mulling over ordering the NYRB edition... It's a chunkster 😅 2mo
Leftcoastzen @batsy it‘s got that sort of cultural heft that I thought would intrigue you! When I was hunting it down, I was reading several books that referred to it. Can I remember now what they were? Well of course not. 2mo
batsy ? If that doesn't sum up my reading life! As for the Burton, I've heard people say it's very "readable", for lack of a better word, so that's rather encouraging! 2mo
Eggs This sounds amazing 💗👏🏻📚👏🏻💗 2mo
sisilia I have the NYRB edition.. I‘ll leave it for next year 😃 2mo

I felt an air of #Melancholy in this brilliant tale of an undistinguished life.

Plath, both this book and her life, have this all-encompassing sadness and #melancholy

Day 14 - #Melancholy #SoulSeptember

From the winner of the 2015 Man Booker International Prize

A surreal novel, about the arrival of a circus in a small Hungarian town. A circus, promising to display the stuffed body of the largest whale in the world, arrives in the dead of winter, prompting bizarre rumors. The circus folk have a sinister purpose in mind. The citizens cling to any manifestation of order they can find music, cosmology, fascism.

EadieB I own this book as it is on the 1001 book list to read before you die. 2mo
Ruthiella @EadieB Are you keeping track of the 1000 books as you go? How many more do you have to read? 2mo
EadieB @Ruthiella I have read 236. I actively read most of them in 2015 and read one now and then but do need to get back to reading more. 2mo
